Old Together

At one time this old windmill probably provided this tree with plentiful water. With most of it gone now, the windmill hasn’t pumped any water in years. But the tree struggles on, with a longing embrace of the ruined machine that once fed it life.

    What a great shot! The beautiful desaturated sky works very well against the green of the tree. Also, your interpretation of the “Old Together” scene sounds convincing.

    interesting. The tree has a bit of green left whilst hte ones in the background look dead.
